Milestone Systems and genetec enjoy joint No. 1 VMS ranking in 2012

IMS Research reports that Milestone Systems and Genetec were the No. 1 suppliers in the VMS market, which is expected to expand in EMEA and China in future years.

09/11/2013


Milestone Systems and Genetec last year were evenly matched as the top suppliers of video management software (VMS) in a market worth more than half a billion dollars, according to a new report on video surveillance equipment from IMS Research, now part of IHS Inc.    

The global VMS market for CCTV and video surveillance was valued at more than $650.0 million in 2012, with forecasts projecting revenue to hit north of $1.6 billion by 2017. All three geographic regions representing the Americas, Asia and the collective Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) territory will exhibit strong double-digit expansion during the next five years. Asia, driven largely by China, will be the fastest-growing area for VMS. 

“While ranking of the Top 4 suppliers remained unchanged, last year marked the first time that the No. 1 spot was held concurrently by two entities,” said Jon Cropley, principal analyst for video surveillance at IHS and author of the report from which these findings were taken. “Milestone Systems, which had held the pinnacle position since the VMS category was added to the IHS video surveillance reports in 2004, retained the largest market share in EMEA, but rival Genetec was the top performer in the Americas.

Even so, the overall VMS market remains fragmented with no single supplier possessing share greater than 10%. Moreover, some of the smaller suppliers—particularly those in Asia—are growing much more quickly than the market on average, Cropley noted. 

The VMS space will remain highly competitive within the next five years, with innovative solutions and keen prices expected to be critical variables. The healthy projected growth, however, could mean rich rewards for the most successful suppliers.

The report entitled “The World Market for CCTV and Video Surveillance Equipment – 2013 edition” is available now from IHS. Readers should note that the market share estimates are based on supplier revenues from the sales of VMS software and licenses during the 2012 calendar year; shares are not calculated from software shipments or installations.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
